Poland 66 Czech Republic 74

Lucie Blahuskova and the Czech Republic have enjoyed many a fine moment at these European Championships but none can so far match Saturday´s Herculean effort against Poland.

The Czechs, unbeaten and easily the most dominant team of the tournament with six successive wins, trailed until four minutes and 45 seconds remained in the third quarter but finally got their noses in front of the Poles and went on to claim a 74-66 triumph.
